What Do Music Boosters Do?
The Primary goal of the Boosters is to ensure the continuation of the best possible music programs for Pinckney Community School students. The Pinckney Music Boosters provide a framework for parental involvement and a means by which parents can affect positive support for all musical programs at Pinckney Community Schools. This includes encouraging and maintaining an interest in all groups, moral and financial support, cooperation with Band, Orchestra and Choir directors, and working with the policies, rules, and procedures of Pinckney Community Schools.
In order for Pinckney's Music program to continue to succeed it needs more than just a hand full of board members. It takes a rather large family of Orchestra, Band and Choir parents coming together, rolling up our sleeves to get the job done year after year! Below are just a few things we aim to accomplish....there is always so much more we would like to do for our students to help them on their musical journey.
